Here is a photo gallery of Jackie in action, and here is's Cheerleader of the Week archive.

I love my school, but I almost went to: Arizona State University or the University of Oklahoma. However, I can not see myself anywhere but Manhattan, Kan.

My best physical feature is: My lips, my mom always says that people would pay good money to have lips like mine.

If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be: The Boondock Saints.

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Lil' Wayne and Eli Young Band. I like a wide variety of music.

The shows I DVR/TiVo are: House, Bones, Nip/Tuck and Friends

My favorite Web Sites are: of course! Just kidding, I like to shop a lot online, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany's mainly. And obviously I do more looking than buying.

My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: I never really got into the whole Twitter movement.

My worst habit is: Biting my nails, twirling my hair and biting my lips. What can I say I am a very nervous person.

My gameday superstitions are: I check to make sure I have spankys on, like 40 times before I go onto the field or court. I don't want to be that cheerleader on ESPN highlights.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Being able to tolerate Manhattan winters. I was born in Arizona anything below 89 degrees is cold.

These three things top my bucket list: Go to Italy, get into a good law school and buy a hot pink Lamborghini when I win my first lawsuit.

I'd want my last meal to be: My mom's spaghetti and meat balls and apple cranberry pie.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: It wasn't at a game, but my team and I worked a cheer competition in Kansas City. We finished setting up and I decided I wanted to tumble on the spring floor. When I flipped over my sweatpants fell down to my ankles and gave a show to my teammates, my coaches and everyone working the competition. They still won't let it go.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My dog, McAlister's sweet tea and SPF 1000 sunscreen, I burn something horrible.

My favorite pro sports teams are: The Boston Red Sox and the Arizona Cardinals. Half of my family lives in New England, so I would be disowned if I was a Yankee fan.

My one guilty pleasure is: Potato chips, any brand, any flavor, any dip.

My celebrity crush is: Tim Tebow, I am seriously contemplating going to law school in Gainesville.

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: My grandfather (he died last year), Paula Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Tim Tebow and Taylor Lautner.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: Have had 13 broken bones, the result of being a nationally ranked gymnast.

The next risk I want to take is: Taking the LSAT.

The worst date I've ever been on was: The first boyfriend I ever had at KSU did not try to contact me during my birthday. Finally, around 11:30 at night he called and asked if I wanted to go out for ice cream, only to make me pay for my ice cream and his. I guess that's why they are called ex-boyfriends.
